Lee Ann Brady, DMD is the director of education of Clinical Mastery and maintains a private practice in Glendale, AZ.

Have you ever wondered why, after prepping a second molar for a crown, the occlusal of the prep is in contact with the opposing tooth? Every time we alter the chewing surface of a tooth we impact the entire stomatognathic system. Often the patient adapts to these changes. But when they don’t it can jeopardize the restoration, the other teeth, and can cost us the patient’s trust, not to mention our time. In this session we will explore the challenges of occlusion we face everyday in a restorative practice and look at how we can utilize this information to make our dentistry more predictable and help our patients stay healthy and comfortable.

After this course attendees will be able to:
  • Review centric relation
  • Identify signs of occlusal disease
  • Discuss managing occlusion in a restorative practice
Recommended Audience: Dentist
